Turkey: Fitch increases rating outlook to “positive”
Fitch, the international rating agency, has increased Turkey’s rating from stable to “positive” from “stable”.
Fitch believes Turkeys economic recovery and improving public finances has given Turkey an improved rating.
Fitch said “The government is lengthening the maturity of its debt, thereby reducing market risk, while financing is supported by a deep local market, as well as strong current capital inflows”.
Fitch thinks Turkeys economy will grow 8 percent this year, which is above the Turkish Governments forecast for growth of 6.8 percent.
